Every November, the BBC holds a telethon for Children in Need, a charity for sick children. Pudsey, a teddy bear with a bandage over one of his eyes, is the mascot for the event. This year, several of Britain's best-known designers, including Erdem, Mulberry, and Liberty of London, created special custom Pudseys. The bears will be auctioned off to raise money for Children in Need.
